James' Review

Margaret River dentist and cricket tragic George Heydon and wife Mary have been involved in the region's wine industry since 1995. They became 50% partners in Arlewood, and when that partnership was dissolved in 2004 they retained the property and the precious 2ha of cabernet sauvignon and 2.5ha of Gin Gin clone chardonnay planted in '88. Additional plantings from '95 include Dijon chardonnay clones, sauvignon blanc, semillon, shiraz and petit verdot. The estate is now biodynamic,near neighbour Vanya Cullen having inspired the decision. Exports to the UK, Singapore and Hong Kong.

About this winery

Heydon Estate is a boutique, family owned and operated wine producer located in the heart of Wilyabrup in the Margaret River wine region. All wines are from the estate’s single vineyard established in 1988, producing some of the region’s finest Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Sauvignon Blanc, Botrytis Semillon, Shiraz and Petit Verdot. Attention to detail is the Heydon family’s mantra, from the application of rigorous organic and traditional practices in the vineyard, to releasing wines once they’ve achieved ideal bottle age and serving them in fine Riedel glassware. The family’s other passion, cricket, takes pride of place on the wine labels with names such as “The Willow” and “W.G. Grace” featuring on the flagship wines.

Specialties

The highly acclaimed specialty wines are The Willow Chardonnay and W.G Grace Cabernet Sauvignon
